The skies were grey and so was the mood for the thousands who went to Dealey Plaza Friday. The emotions of the dark day in Dallas returned for some and were felt for the first time by others.

A 19-year-old college student has been tapped to sing the national anthem at the JFK 50th Commemoration later this month in Dallas.
